Re: Finally building my 64 Comet

Mount your tires, put the white wheels on one side and black wheels on the other, then walk around the car a dozen times. Still can't decide? Take a pic of both sides a...

Re: Finally building my 64 Comet

..............Was there any other white colors offered in 64? ........ Polar White I’ll have to look at the vin, do you know which number or letter this would be in the vin?
